I was just in Bristol and got pulled over for 55 in a 35. I was in 5:00 traffic on a Friday afternoon and was going with the flow of traffic. I wasn't paying any attention to my speed, but I was right along with everyone else in front of me, and beside me. I'm sure I was over 35, but I don't think it was 55. I didn't look at the ticket until after I got home. When I did look at it, I was furious. He has down on the ticket, a completely different make and model car than what I was driving. This is my first ticket. Does anyone think I can get this dropped? I'm thinking with traffic as heavy as what it was, he might have clocked someone driving the make and model he put on the ticket, and when he finally got in the traffic, the car he clocked on radar was already gone. He saw the back of my car and pulled me over. He did get the color right. I live in Virginia, but got pulled over on the Tennessee side.
Any advice from anyone?

Absolutely you can fight it. If it wasn't your car, then YES go to court, bring your car documentation, (and that of everyone you live with) and fight it! I woudl think it would be dropped immediately, though you may have to pay court costs (which is a joke, where do our taxes go but to pay the fat cat judges?)
